Last week’s “snowman in the window” picture is but a chilly memory, considering we’ve had temperatures in the 70’s here for over a week. That is not just odd – it’s unbelievable for March in Wisconsin. Many are speculating as to the reason, but I have my own theory – my granddaughter was born this past Monday and her name is Sommer Elizabeth. So Sommer is here :-)!
6 lbs 15 oz and 21″ long, with lots of dark hair ……. we’re all thrilled! Thanks for letting me share our joy.
So what does the view from my window look like today?
Quite a change, but I am still excited about making a small quilt from the picture with the snowman. I’m thinking of thread painting the entire scene on a vintage white damask napkin. I’ve never thread painted an entire scene and I think it will be quite challenging. I think this challenge should be about trying something new.
A number of you responded to the challenge, and so far 3 have sent me pictures which have been posted to the Window View Challenge page on this blog. Click here to see them.
I’m looking forward to receiving more pictures and there is still time to get in on the fun. The quilts can be any size, from a post card on up. The prize will be an autographed copy of my new book: Compass Capers (which should be available for purchase through my website very, very soon). So send me a picture of your view at email@example.com, and join in on the challenging fun!
